    Just…odd. Can’t he sit in a nicely lit room with a plant in the background? I almost think sometimes the way he butchered the meat and his answers were aligned. Super creepy.

    Of course they were aligned. Michael must be seen as the powerful alpha man who can whip anybody at all moments of all days, or someone might figure out how scared and shallow he is.

  • Donsie

    I actually think his butchery skills are really impressive. If he’d just stick to butchery and not preachin’ I think he’d be on a better track.

    I found this incredibly creepy at first, but then my loathing for his disregard of others took over. How does anyone in their right mind not care that many people might be offended with the setting and not even hear the message? I watched another video and was appalled with his rude manners. He seems to fit the behavior of the domineering, controlling and possibly sociopathic, emotional abuser. I’ve seen it often–men who are either so self-absorbed they don’t know their actions affect others or that they are so important that others must tolerate their bad manners, lack of grooming, rudeness, etc. Triggered! Ugh! Screaming inside!!!!!!!!!
